THE NORTH PLATTE SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE
The luxuries of yestordny
have b'ccohle the necessities of
flny. We have only to think of
gas, telephones, electric lights,
and street cars to appreciate
this, and wontlor how people
over lived without them.
Tliatils. tojpur public utilities,
tho most Yftlqient form of co
operative bjifslhoss, these ser
vices havol)ecoino commonplace
things of daily life. Gas service,
for instance, is at our command
so easily that wo accept and use
It as a matter of course, without
a though of how It got there.
Yet it has not simply "happen
ed", or like Topsy, "Just grow
ed." The story of its origin',- grow
th and place in tho life of tho
nation is romance made reality.
It shows tho result of labor, In
vestment and directing genius,
al uniting to render a service
bo lndispensiblo as to deservo tho
good-will of every community
fortunate enough to obtain it.
